Diablo?

So I was thinking about games and this came to mind...
I used to play diablo on my pentium 100mhz. It's default resolution is 640x480, but it has a low-res mode of 320x240 (native winmo anyone?).
Why couldn't it work on a winmo setup?

Re: Diablo?

Id love to see someone port this. I wonder how difficult it would be to do.

Re: Diablo?

The porting might not be difficult, but the controls may be a bit hard for it to be feasible to play on a mobile device.

Re: Diablo?

Why? The whole game is just point and click.

Re: Diablo?

It will run under Wine (if I recall correctly) so you might be able to do it using one of the PPC Linux ports.... It would be an awful lot of trouble to set up though... (I'd still like to see it)

Any volunteers? I'd pay $50 for it.

Well for example in the first Diablo when items drop there is no nifty press ALT to have it labeled, you have to search the floor with your mouse until it goes over it.
On a PPC how would that work?

Bind a button on the PPC to ALT and bind another button to switching skills and your golden.

that won't work for ALT, in the first Diablo you could NOT press ALT to see what was on the ground.
You had to hover the curser over the item on the ground to see what it was, and if there items dropped......
